Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Monterey Pop and Bob Marley (non-Dead)

I seldom post any non-dead here, but...
As much as I hate to praise a corprorate monster such as Starbucks, I have to give them credit for a couple of new releases they have. My daughter just gave me the Monterey Pop Festival 2 cd compilations and the new Bob Marley live collection from Starbucks entertainment, and I must say they are exquisite. The Monterey Pop double cd has, in addition to the previously released Hendrix and Redding stuff, some nice music from Simon & Garfunkel, Mamas & papas, Airplane, Eric Burdon, Hugh Masekela, the WhoBooker T, buffalo Springfield and a couple of others, a very nice compilation. The BMW cd features live performances from '73-75 and features 7 previously unreleased tracks from such venues asthe Lyceum, Record Plant, Leeds Polytech and the Paris Theater. All in all a surprisingly awesome couple of releases that I am thouroughly enjoying.

They've had some good releases over the years- I enjoyed the Dylan "Live at the Gaslight" CD- if there is such a thing as "primal Dylan", that release was it.
